Almost as much as I loathe everything the Republican Party has become. Almost.
She consistently makes calm, rational arguments against an increasingly hysterical, unhinged right (see the Tea-Baggers, who find even the Republicans too cuddly-lefty). The right brands her as someone out on the fanatical left wing fringes, but I just don't see it; there's no sensible comparison between her and, say, Glenn Beck (Keith Olbermann maybe; but not Maddow).
The fact that she goes on here for 10 minutes shows how widespread this depraved obstructionism is among these bozos.
This clip comes to me, as do most Maddow and Olbermann clips, from Ed Brayton over at Dispatches From the Culture Wars. I refuse to comb thru network news coverage to find the nuggets, but I must say I'm grateful that someone else does. This way I get all of the nutrition and none of the junk food.
